I suppose you could get a packet of relish to go with the ketchup and mustard.

"<snip>....about catching your wiener in the zipper. Check your local bike shop for them soon. Hopefully, they’ll be offering them in colors to match team kit, so you can enjoy your roadside hotdog just like your favorite pro.

Thank you. I also discovered this device will hold sunglasses, making it dual purpose.

Can it still be used for sunglasses after the hot dog is consumed?

Now, if you could hook it up to the generator and stick electrodes in the hotdog and cook it while you ride, you might have something there.

But as is, I am reminded of the Firesign Theater's Don't crush that Dwarf, Hand me the Pliers, in which, Pastor Rod Flash exclaims, "That's Right! Our God is a Mighty HOT DOG!"

Or, perhaps a Corn Dog. Gotta have a cutout for the stick, though.
